The Auckland Secondary Schools Championships were completed at Remuera and Kohimarama Bowling Clubs this week in wonderful weather. The standard of bowls lifted to a higher level with coached schools leading the way in all events.

St Dominic’s College made a clean sweep winning all the Girl’s events. The singles winner was Mackenzie Blucher defeating Kate Cassidy in an exciting final. Well done Mackenzie aving won this event for the three years in a row. The Girls Pair’s was won by Kate Cassidy and Antonia Victor (St Dominic’s College) defeating Mackenzie Blucher and Michelle Greer (St Dominic’s College) Kate and Antonia have won this event for the past two years.

Auckland Grammar and St Peter’s College shared the spoils in the Boys division. Aiden Takarua (St Peter’s College) defeated best friend Indy Platt-Byrnes (St Peter’s College) in a one sided singles final.

The Boys Pair’s final was an all Auckland Grammar School with great bowls played by both teams. The more experienced team of Jack Iles and Mack Waite could not match the young team of Zane Teo and Ethan Tomaszyk with the “young guns” taking the title. Zane Teo is the nephew of Ester Eu who has been working with the pair over the past six weeks. Well done Esther!!!
